    Best Caterer in DC

    If you are looking for truly exceptional catering in DC look no further. Windows has the most delicious food, exquisite linens /flatware /glassware and professional service in the the region. We used their Kosher catering wing which was wonderful with plentiful options, elegant presentation and lots of fun things you could customize to make the dinner really feel like "yours." We recommend Debbie and her team 100%.

    Evening in the Garden

    i can only express our complete satisfaction and awe at the phenomenal job Anne and her staff at WIndows Catering exemplified at my daughter's wedding. The attention to detail was impeccable. No one could believe (even I😊) that the wedding and dinner were originally planned to be outside. I personally, had a couple of sleepless nights looking at the weather forecast, but Ann and her staff at Windows were able to shift gears with such poise and ease, I was able to relax and enjoy the moment.

    The presentation during each phase of the wedding, dinner and reception was absolutely beautiful and flawless, it made such an impression on guests as they entered each space. The happy couple were was ecstatic that they were still able to keep important details in tact, despite the last minute change due to weather! The flowers, for the wedding and the dinner were both unique and stunning. All of the arrangements and even the corsages and boutonnieres were elegant and exuded class.

    Words cannot express our family's gratitude for your professionalism and gift for design. THANK YOU for making my daughter's "Evening in the Garden", the wedding of their dreams.

I had the privilege of working with Windows Catering at a wedding in November 2016 and everything was perfect! The food tasted great, the buffet display was lovely and inviting, the staff was pleasant and professional. It was also a joy to work with Cynthia and Ashley leading up to the wedding. They were both helpful at the walkthrough, with menu choices, seating chart and ensuring that everything ran on schedule. Thank you for such a wonderful job! Look forward to working with you in the future.
